JVC Surround Sound Entertainment Devices Unveiled

JVC UNVEILS ENTERTAINMENT SURROUND SYSTEM FOR FULL RANGE OF DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT DEVICES

New TH-L1 Accommodates Game Systems, iPods and More
With 360 Watts and Six Compact Speakers

LAS VEGAS January 7, 2007 — A unique new JVC home entertainment system makes is easy to bring surround sound to a houseful of digital entertainment devices. The new JVC TH-L1 is a compact entertainment surround system designed to bring surround sound to virtually any device and digital format, from video gaming systems to iPods.

The TH-L1 is comprised of five small, cubic speakers, a subwoofer and a main unit that features 360 watts, 5.1-channel surround decoding and a full complement of inputs and outputs, including USB Host and an iPod audio and video connection for iPod control and charging. In addition, it has three AV inputs, including two HDMI inputs.

The main unit, which is not much larger than a Manhattan telephone book, provides Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding. In addition to the front-panel-mounted iPod and USB inputs, the back panel includes two HDMI inputs and an HDMI output with 1080p pass through for high definition sources, two component inputs, two composite inputs, two S-Video inputs and two digital (one optical, one coaxial) audio inputs. A third set of composite, S-Video and digital (optical) audio inputs are on the front panel. Outputs include, in addition to one HDMI, one component output, one composite video output and one S-video output.

Power ratings are 40 watts per channel for the two front channels, 100 watts for the center channel, 40 watts per channel for the two rear channels and 100 watts for the subwoofer.

The system’s five speakers are four-inch cubes — small enough for easy integration into a room while remaining discrete. In addition, they can be easily hung on the wall. The 6-5/16-inch subwoofer is in a cabinet that measures roughly 10 x 11 x 6 (W x H x D) inches, so it, too, is easily accommodated.

To get the most out of both music and video files stored on an iPod, the TH-L1 offers a front panel connection that routes the sound through the system’s 5.1-channel speaker system. And with Dolby Pro Logic II, even two-channel material gets the surround sound treatment. Video is sent to a connected display via an S-Video or composite output. With an iPod connected, the system provides charging and control of play, pause, skip and search.

For even more versatility, the front USB Host input allows playback of files from most flash digital audio players, and even from most USB storage devices. It offers playback compatibility with MP3, WMA, WAV (PCM), MPEG4 and JPEG files, so it can handle music, stills and video.
